Meet all those little things that made my trip.
Along my trip through New Zealand I used a lot of what I call “Travel Resources”. It can be everyday items, websites or books... things that I interacted with regularly or not and that helped me during my trip. It is a bit of a free for all, if I think of something, I’ll put it here.
The goal is to give you my take on each of them and give you an unusually insight on a working holiday visa experience in New Zealand. You of course will not need to use all those or may use different ones but knowing what you will encounter may be helpful.
Before I jetted off on my working holiday, I heard about being able to get some tax back when you work in New Zealand. The New Zealand tax system means a percentage of your earnings are taken with each pay check. Because, money is money and who could say no to getting more money, I got in contact with taxback.com who were able to make a payment straight into my bank account after I worked in New Zealand for a few months. Of course, they take a small fee from your tax return but, honestly, when it's money you didn't even have to begin with, you're not going to notice.
